Wikileaks Linked to US Intelligence and Spying Networks

Julian Assange’s outright dismissal of the 9/11 cover-up as a ‘false conspiracy’ rang alarm bells with me. How could a purported ‘whistleblower’, claiming to be exposing the lies of corrupt governments shield the biggest lie of the 21st century from criticism? Anybody willing to do five minutes of research can uncover the trove of evidence suggesting a cover-up and lying at the highest levels of the US government with regards to 9/11. Especially a ‘computer hacker’ of world renown.

What kind of ‘whistleblower’ only leaks his scoops to corporate media outlets such as the Guardian, and New York Times, in the full knowledge that they are subject to editorial bias, censorship and omission? For a group ostensibly devoted to exposing the truth, Wikileaks’ strategy is puzzling.

What kind of ‘whistleblower’ goes to these corporate outlets for live Q&A sessions, complete with a photoshoot, while the world’s most tyrannical governments are supposedly hunting him down? The mere fact that Assange and Wikileaks are receiving such unprecedented promotion in the corporate media is something to be concerned about.

The fact that the leaks have overwhelmingly supported and bolstered the US-Israeli anti-Iranian propaganda efforts is somewhat less surprising in light of these facts. Still, the Left ignores this. Like dogs thrown a bone, progressives abandon critical thinking and brainlessly defend Assange purely because he’s denounced by the elite. This is all part of the plan; denunciations from the politicians have the purpose of maintaining Assange and Wikileaks’ credibility. Credibility that was originally cemented by the leak of Collateral Murder.

At the time of writing, Wikileaks has released only 842 cables out of over 250,000, a meagre 0.34%. Despite this, the pseudo Left is in a fever at finally learning the ‘truth’. Wikileaks bears all the hallmarks of a limited hangout operation.

Wikileaks, Google, and the CIA

A company known as In-Q-Tel is a CIA venture capital firm that has the aim of maintaining the CIA’s intelligence capabilities. See: http://www.iqt.org/about-iqt/history.html

In-Q-Tel sold 5,636 Google shares in 2005. The stocks were a result of Google’s acquisition of Keyhole, the CIA funded satellite mapping software that we now know as Google Earth.

Earlier this year it was reported that In-Q-Tel and Google Ventures are buying Recorded Future, a web analytics and spying outfit whose software “scours tens of thousands of Web sites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find the relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents”. See: http://gcn.com/articles/2010/07/29/inqtel-google-fund-web-analysis-firm.aspx

See the Washington Post on Google’s partnership with NSA: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/02/03/AR2010020304057.html

So we’ve established that Google is in bed with the major US intelligence networks.

Now for the interesting part. A man named Ben Laurie is an Advisory Board member of Wikileaks: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Laurie

He used to be a security boss at Google, and he is currently working for them in London.

See the references to his work at Google on his blog: http://www.links.org/

See his page on Google: http://www.google.com/research/pubs/author9639.html

So here we have a Wikileaks advisory board member working for a corporation that has partnered with the CIA to buy a firm specialising in software perfectly suited to spying, infiltration and COINTELPRO. Not to mention Google’s partnership with the NSA which is ostensibly in the name of cyber security after cyber attacks it says ‘originated in China’. The recently-leaked cables even suggested that China was behind the attacks (convenient huh?)

I don’t know about you but I think this is a bit too close for comfort.

Wikileaks: Serving the Empire

Mark Stephens, Assange’s lawyer, is a Freeman of the City of London – leading centre of global banking & finance:

Stephens has represented corporate media heavyweights ABC, CNN, & The New York Times:

Julian Assange has close links to the Economist, controlled by the Rothschild banking family:

Wikileaks & The Guardian further the need for more neoliberal take-overs in Venezuela:

In the UK Independent, Israeli journalist Yossi Melman attributes the cablegate leaks to Mossad, MI6 & the CIA (read the first two paragraphs):

    Your story has a few points that don’t stick.

    1st: Ben Laurie was only involved during the first steps WikiLeaks took in 2008 by helping them out with their technical infrastructure. If his Google-ties which could tie him to the CIA were any indication of WL being a COINTELPRO, why name him on their Advisory Board? Why not tell people that they had an anonymous, renowned security specialist as an architect during their first year? Ben Laurie wasn’t really *that* known to many people outside of the open source/free software community.

    2nd: Assange never denied 9/11. He said that one should focus on conspiracies that one can proove right now, based on original documents. I am convinced that 9/11 has been orchestrated by some people within the US government, I really am. I see this as an invitation to everyone who could have been in contact with such material to leak it.

    3rd: Even if WikiLeaks already had a trove of documents that are proof to a 9/11-insidejob: Would you publish such documents after only 3 years of activity as a journalistic entity or wait until you figured out all possible attack-vectors by the mainstream press and the governments? I’d start slow by releasing documents that aren’t as critical, just to analyse my opponent.

    It’s ok to be sceptical. But you could orchestrate any organisation to be part of a CIA/NSA-propaganda program if that’s all the evidence you have. Sorry.

    Anonymous,

    1: Regardless of *when* he was involved, he was involved, and he has met and advised Assange on a number of occasions. This cannot be and is not denied, not by him and not by Wikileaks. Why did they name him on the advisory board? Why not? Somebody would find out soon enough anyway, so there’s no point in trying to hide it which makes it look even more suspicious. The fawning corporate media won’t report on links like this so they have nothing to worry about anyway.

    2 & 3: Assange said 9/11 was a ‘false conspiracy’ (read the source above), i.e. there was no cover-up and the 9/11 Truthers are wasting their time. The point is, we CAN prove that the official 9/11 narrative is false, ae911truth are doing it, as can ANYBODY with a bleeding Internet connection. The evidence does not NEED to be leaked; yet Assange is protecting it from scrutiny. A chimpanzee with an abacus can work out that 9/11 was an inside job, and you’re telling me this ‘anti-establishment’ hacker and savvy ‘whistleblower’ doesn’t know it? Get real.

    100-storey buildings don’t explode into dust and a 3-storey rubble pile when planes hit them (especially WTC7, hit by no planes); planes don’t disappear (Pentagon); planes that crash in fields don’t end up in 2 separate debris fields miles apart (flight 93). I could go into the hundreds of unanswered questions and glaring problems with the official account, but there is no need.

    “…you could orchestrate any organisation to be part of a CIA/NSA-propaganda program if that’s all the evidence you have.”

    We’re talking about Wikileaks here, the very ANTITHESIS to the establishment’s intelligence & spying networks. Such a link is a major concern.

    In the article Noam Chomsky: WikiLeaks Cables Reveal “Profound Hatred for Democracy on the Part of Our Political Leadership”
    Mr. Chomsky talks about some untruths documented in some cables, some unconsitencies of truth and lies given in some cables.
    I was hoping we would finally get the truth on 9/11, and would think those cables would be revealed first………… but now I see there will be only the hidden agenda revealed to us, so much for wikileaks telling the truth, lol.
